How to find a Cross-Sectoral Collaborator

 

Requirements:

  • The collaborators should be from a different sector or discipline than the fellow.
  • Should be based at NGOs, private firms, or universities.
  • Reside in the same country where the fellow will be based during the fellowship (preferred).
  • Time availability to meet with the fellow to provide project feedback.

 

Cross-Sectoral Collaborator

 

The CSF Program is looking to support projects that are informed and supported by cross-sector collaborations. Candidates must identify one or more cross-sectoral collaborators from a target discipline in the Program (biology, natural sciences, architecture or engineering), but from a different field than the candidate. The collaborator’s knowledge and experience should complement the team and contribute towards the success of the project.

Funds to cover the honorarium of the collaborators can be included in the budget, as long as this is fully justified in terms of the activities of the Program and the time directly dedicated to the project with the fellow.

Potential collaborators can be listed at the pre-proposal stage, but should be secured for the full proposal.

 

Incentives

  • Work with other sectors to help achieve sustainable solutions.
  • Financial support for their participation in the implementation of the project.
  • Networking opportunities with other fellows, mentors, and Coastal Solutions program partners and supporters along the continent.
